Our Centres

The Call to serve the wider Church

Ridley’s core commitment is to provide the substantial and challenging training that will equip the leaders of the Church to meet the fresh demands made upon ministry. Alongside this, we embrace opportunities to diversify our programmes and activities. Far from distracting the College they complement our core commitment. 

Since the 1980s we have developed innovative programmes and centres which have been established for this very reason: each one has come into being in response to a specific need in society and the wider Church, and at the same time is a gift that enriches the community.
